Take a Trip Back in Time

Take a trip down the Thompson river on the Rubina, from the Port of Sale to the historical swing bridge.  Very relaxing way to meander along the river whilst listening to your very knowledgeable tour guide.

The Beauty of the Cruise

Where you find water, you find birds and animals, and keen eyes will spot Whistling Kites, Nankeen Night Herron’s, Azure Kingfisher’s, Australian Darter, and many more. Koalas, Eastern Water Dragons and Swamp Wallabies are among the myriad of different species that can be seen along the Rubeena’s route.
